Not sure about availability but here is the nonnative link.
I must have been sleeping last week because I forgot to post these pics of the NB event in Asia. The sneakers, concept shop and pics are all really well done. The sneakers will be available next week at select U.S. shops. Read more about it at Nicekicks.com, or check out the rest of the pics after the break.
Pretty sure these are out now.

I was away, so i’m a little late on this, but J. Crew is killing it these days. This is how a video should be done.
Anyone else see these J. Crew New Balance 1400′s?
I went into the J. Crew Store on Madison the other day and it looked like Williamsburg up in that shit.
None of the featured product was even J. Crew Brand. They had the “Brooklyn Lumberjack” look featured, which consisted of flannels, boots, corduroys, wool caps and hunting jackets. I’ll admit they had all heritage brands and a nicely curated selection. Just don’t try to wear more than two of those things at once and not be in the woods somewhere. It honestly looked like my closet in 1993. Even down to the San Francisco Seals wool cap.
So back to the sneakers…… J. Crew typically has what you would expect them to have as far as sneakers are concerned. The stuff that goes with khakis: Stan Smith, Jack Purcell, Spring Court. Now we see this New Balance 1400 (also in navy), which are allegedly exclusive to select J. Crew stores and the catalog (via hypebeast). Not only are they exclusive, they are Made in U.S.A. I don’t see any J. Crew branding on the sneakers, but it could be there.
This is a pretty interesting collaboration. The shoes aren’t neck or ground breaking, but a partnership you have to notice.
They could have made these a little more unique given the opportunity, but I don’t think J. Crew really has sneaker people working there.
J. Crew is going after it with the new concept shops and business model. I wonder what other sneaker collabs are coming down the line? I need to google J. Crew and Mickey D. later…..
I wouldn’t be surprised if this little collab opens the door for some even crazier shit in the future.
I’ll see you guys in line for the Target exclusives.
Concepts, in Cambridge, MA got together with New Balance to create the “Freedon Trail” Collection. It features two silhouettes: the classic 1500 sneaker and the first-ever 875 boot (pictured here).
The 875 is a brand new style launched to the public for the first time via the Concepts Collection. The boot was designed for comfort and durability. The sole unit includes New Balance Rollbar™ technology for maximum support and stability. Additionally, NB designers used a PU Wedge in the heel (similar to the wedge that offers superior support in the NB 993) and compression molded EVA in the forefoot. The 875 features a full grain leather upper, pigskin leather lining, and embossed tongue tag.
Its always nice to see new styles being introduced with store colabs. The 875 came out really nice and are perfect for the season. These are only going to a select few shops in the U.S.
These aren’t that flashy but really solid. I’ve been wearing these for the past week or two and these are made with some serious care and quality. The New Balance 998 Made In USA. How many sneakers do you own made in USA? Probably none. Suede and mesh uppers, all grey with deep purple accents. Cool with the kids, cool with the librarians.
